Hokkaido Shrine in Sapporo, Japan | The most beautiful place in winter

🌟 Highlights: Hokkaido Shrine is a Shinto shrine located in the Chuo Ward of Sapporo, Hokkaido. At the beginning of Hokkaido's development, the region often faced towards areas such as Birta and the Kuril Islands, and the shrine's main gate faces northeast to serve defensive needs against Russia. ❤ Recommended reason: On January 1st every year, there is a custom in Japan called 'Hatsumode' (the first shrine visit of the New Year), where people pray for a safe and smooth year. Additionally, people visit the shrine to pray for safe travels, success in school entrance exams, and good marital matches. In Hokkaido Shrine, four deities are enshrined—Okuninushi, Onamuchi, Sukunahikona, and Emperor Meiji. For tourists, visiting the shrine is more about experiencing the atmosphere, and if interested, you can buy some amulets to give to friends and family. 👍 Most recommended: The cherry blossoms in May are the most beautiful🌸, and the winter snowscapes are the most stunning! 📍 Address: 474 Miyagaoka, Chuo Ward, Sapporo City 🚉 Transportation: Take the subway Tozai Line to Maruyama Park Station, and it's a short walk from there. 🕙 Business hours: Open all year from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM 💰 Admission fee: Free 📝tips: Be sure to experience Hokkaido when you visit Japan!
